Hey Portland, we are just across the river… #WeWantUberPDX

Last updated: 7 Dec 2015

Today we are bringing you Ice Cream, but what’s next?  Uber has officially launched in Vancouver, WA, so why can’t you tap that App in Portland?

Regulations are still in place that prevent Uber from operating in Portland; it’s now the largest city in the US where Uber is not available.

How is Uber good for a city?

  • Safe, track-able rides home – with stats to show it reduced drunk driving in Seattle
  • No exchange of cash in the vehicle = easier for riders, safer for driver-partners
  • Background and driving record checks for every driver-partner
  • 19 point vehicle inspection on every vehicle
  • 1 million dollars in combined single limit insurance coverage while a rider is in the vehicle
  • Builds small businesses while offering unmatched flexibility to driver-partners

Ok, so, why doesn’t Portland update it’s regulations to allow Uber to operate?  Seems like a no brainer…

That’s a great question.  If you want Uber in PDX, email and tweet your local officials and tell them that #WeWantUberPDX!
